Rare Atom clone???

Post by oss003 » Tue Mar 20, 2012 8:57 am

Have a look at this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/260983151053

Is it an Atomic BBC or a BeebAtom or what?? :wink:

Looks like an attempt to upgrade the Atom to a BBC.
Any volunteers to develop a motherboard?

'Acorn Atom
However, this is only the keyboard on its circuit board in the case.
There is no motherboard !'

I think we'd need to see a picture of the insides to work this one out :)
